MCM were commissioned by Orchard Street Investments to complete a Cat A refurbishment at Old Jewry, a prime location in the heart of the City of London. The refurbishment needed to appeal to a modern, corporate tenant, so the space was designed to create a light, timeless and sophisticated atmosphere.

The works involved an extensive re-model of the reception space and upgrading lift lobbies and WCs. As well as refreshing the office floors, so the building could be used to its full potential
First impressions were vital, so the external canopy was upgraded to create a brighter entrance and more impact at street level.  The reception needed to be a visitor and tenant ‘delight’, so the whole reception area was redesigned to create a more welcoming environment, including making a seating area for guests.

Lift surrounds were upgraded and a feature wall added for a dramatic and elegant ambience. Once the colour palette had been simplified and the new signage and branding completed, the final result was a completely different environment.

All materials were carefully selected to ensure longevity, timeless appeal and to adhere to best practice in sustainable standards. The aim was to make a minimum impact on the environment and a maximum impact on those who visit the space.
